Last year, despite challenges from the pandemic we still served over 700 children. We need your help to continue our critical work to make a difference in the lives of children with vision loss!

We need our VIPS supporters help more than ever during this uniquely challenging time with the gift of a new donation or pledge, or continuing your existing your support. If you are not a monthly donor--now would be a great time to initiate a monthly gift. The families we serve depend on our teachers and we depend on you to help us in our critical mission to provide early intervention to every child with blindness or low vision.

Learn more about how VIPS is moving forward with our services in spite of COVID-19.

Planned Giving

Leave a lasting legacy for VIPS children.

Leave a lasting legacy to VIPS!

There are a number of ways that you can include VIPS in your estate plans.  Not only will you be helping future generations of children who are blind and visually impaired, you will also receive personal tax and financial benefits.

Donors may become a VIPS legacy member by providing a gift through, but not limited to the following:

  • Endowment Gift
  • Bequest
  • Charitable Gift Annuity
  • Trust
  • Life Estate Gift
  • Insurance

A Tax Savings Opportunity

Are you 70 ½ years old or older with an individual retirement account? If yes, you are permitted to make a qualified charitable distribution from your IRA directly to a qualifying charity such as VIPS, without declaring the distribution as income. You may roll over up to $100,000 in any one year from your IRA without incurring any taxable income, per the Pension Protection Act of 2006, which became permanent last December.

For more information about Planned Giving, please contact our Development Office at (502) 498-2933.  Anyone currently designating VIPS in their will or estate plans is encouraged to contact VIPS as well.
